Ciara? Who? During the summer of 2004, the slick, crunked-out "Goodies" was the No. 1 song in the country, its heavy, pulsing beat booming from car speakers or shaking club walls. I dug the record and cranked it up if I happened to be in the car when the tune came on. It was hard to miss since the cut was on the air, like, every 10 minutes. Because the Lil' Jon-produced track was so hot, I paid little attention to the thin-voiced chick delivering the lines in a somewhat robotic croon. But soon Miss Thing became almost inescapable.

Raising Maryland's minimum wage has faced tough going in Annapolis ever since Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. left office. It was the Republican governor's steadfast opposition to raising the minimum wage that spurred Democrats to support an increase in 2005 - and then override his veto. Since then, interest in setting wage levels has been, shall we say, minimal. So it came as a bit of surprise to hear Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller jump on the bandwagon last week, announcing his support for raising Maryland's minimum wage, particularly given that such a proposal died in the Senate Finance Committee on an 8-3 vote just months ago. Suddenly, it's become a front-burner issue.

Benjamin Coles considered himself the Pied Piper of West Baltimore. He'd jingle the bells of his goodies truck, and the children came running.For the past 10 years, Mr. Coles, 58, who died Tuesday of undetermined causes at his Clarksville home, sold ice cream, snowballs, candy and soft drinks from the side window of a truck as he slowly drove through West and Northwest Baltimore neighborhoods.He also sold his goodies regularly on summer Sundays at Druid Hill Park."There'd always be a crowd around his truck, 'cause everyone knew Mr. Benny had the best sweets," said Sam Lister, a longtime friend and former co-worker aboard the truck.

There's a grade-school-level international game being played. It's like the one you played as a kid when you would have a friend punch you as hard as possible in the stomach to see how long you could keep a fake smile plastered on your face. "Oh, THAT didn't hurt AT ALL! Hit me harder, you wimp!" That, right now, is America -- and it needs to stop. Let's take two recent beneficiaries of the goodies-for-abuse program: Russia and Pakistan. Russia apparently doesn't feel that granting asylum to National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden and his multiple laptops and thumb drives is a big deal.

ATTRIBUTING the budget fiasco to divided government is like blaming a hurricane on the tides. Having a president of one party and a Congress of another makes the mess harder to clean but did not cause it.Ronald Reagan managed that with his supply-side pipe dream. We could buy more guns with lower taxes, he said. Growth would pick up the check."Voodoo economics," George Bush said until Reagan woke him spiritually with the vice presidential nomination. Then he became star apostle of the free lunch mystique, subsequently pitching his own presidential bid on a no-tax pledge both he and thevoters knew was a lie.By then, he had spun himself into reverse so many times he was confident he could find a way to make Democrats take the political hit when he had to renege.

SO MUCH FOR austerity, that clarion call of Republican fiscal conservatives in Congress. Pork is back.Is it ever! Just look at the 1,600 "high-priority" projects included in a monstrous transportation bill about to clear the House of Representatives.This is pure, 100-percent lard that will cost taxpayers a staggering $18 billion over the next six years.Nearly every congressional district gets its share of goodies -- about four projects per member. Representatives who oppose such blatant taxpayer giveaways, such as Delaware's lone House member, Republican Michael N. Castle, wind up with nothing.

Hard as it may be to imagine, House Democrats took a corrupting, goodie-giveaway practice that served as a prime source of scandal for Republicans and made the process exponentially worse. Under the Republicans, each lawmaker's pet projects were tacked onto broad spending bills with no competition or review and few questions asked. By last year, so-called earmarks had grown to nearly 14,000, compared with 1,400 in 1995. But a Democratic effort to bring these goodies out of the closet has run wildly awry.

Even the politicians are starting to get the word: Americans, for better or worse, like divided government: the White House in Republican hands and Congress comfortably controlled by Democrats.While the Democrats hunt desperately for viable presidential candidates to run against George Bush, Republicans are finding it almost as difficult to put together a team that might conceivably recapture the Senate, the only chamber for which they have even an outside chance.One problem for the GOP is its lack of depth, particularly in the South.

Next time you're near Sandy Spring, check out Urban Bar-B-Que, 805 Olney Sandy Spring Road (Highway 108). It's that easy to recommend. If you look the place up online, you may be turned off by the redneck motif. Don't be. Urban's approach tips its hat and decor to that often-derided cohort, but they treat the style gently, with tongue in cheek. Everywhere you look in the dining room, you'll see details paying homage to redneckism. The Elvis painting, the camo hunter's cap, the framed tattoo designs and John Deere are all here.

Decked out in her most patriotic costume, Flo Keeny arrived ready to wow the audience at an Annapolis retirement home with her part in the South County Showstoppers revue. With less than 30 minutes until curtain time, a change in the lineup had this 77-year-old hoofer dashing for home to retrieve another costume. Her act suddenly shifted from Broadway's "Yankee Doodle Dandy" to a graceful hula and sweet song reflecting on a little grass shack in Hawaii. Instead of tapping across the stage in red, white and blue, she swiveled smoothly in traditional island garb.

Today's Not-So-Great-Depression has claimed a new victim: children's birthday party goody bags. And good riddance, too. I despise those little crinkly plastic bags full of $3-a-piece junk: the oddly fluorescent lizard made in China, the fake garnet ring with the finger-pinching gap in the back (isn't real garnet ugly enough?) or the ubiquitous rectangles of stickers, stickers, and more stickers. Yes, it's all junk that gets lost or tossed into piles in kids' bedrooms. Junk that is nonetheless a costly burden and time-stealer for overwhelmed birthday party parents.

For Joel Nathanson, the most frightening part of Halloween is not the ghoulish disguises, creaking haunted houses or dangling skeletons. It's the candy. "Nobody needs to eat that much candy," said Nathanson, a Timonium dentist and father of three. "Sticky candies, especially, remain in the mouth a long time and contribute to decay." This year, Nathanson is offering to buy candy from little witches and goblins. As part of a national program, Nathanson will pay children a dollar for a pound of sweets and hand them fancy flashing toothbrushes.

They say the more colorful your salad, the more healthful it is. But instead of piling on the shredded carrots this month, try chopping up a bell pepper to decorate your mixed greens. Ranging in color from red to yellow to green and sometimes even purple, bell peppers are available throughout the year, but they are especially delectable during the summer months. It's well-known that bell peppers are high in vitamin A, but you might not know that they are also very rich in vitamin B-6 and folic acid, both of which help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Lately, the stroll to ward the Ravens game has become more appetizing. The aromas of grilled meats, chicken wings, hot dogs and fries wash over football fans as they stream along Ravenswalk, the concourse that runs between Oriole Park at Cam den Yards and M&T Bank Stadium. This fall, the walkway is lined with stands selling food and drink from six area restaurants. Ten stands open three hours before kickoff of Ravens home games and continue limited service dur ing the games. A 9-foot-by-12-foot television screen set up in the middle of the action shows the Ravens and other NFL games.
